Every workplace is subject to the consequences of human interaction. Though many of these are positive, particularly when the environment is organized to best manage the business performance of individuals, conflict is inevitable. Conflict, however, can be managed as well, which allows the results to contribute to the environment rather that detract from it.
Difficult employees, inexperienced managers, unclear standards, differences of opinion, hazy job descriptions, unexplained expectations, confusing policies — all often lead to disagreement and tension. Training is instrumental in dealing with conflict so that tensions are not escalated and solutions can be created.
